The Billionaire’s Holiday Engagement by Jenna Bayley-Burke

Venture capitalist Cameron Price is a workaholic and great at his job, but his boss is convinced Cam needs a more balanced life. A wife on his arm would prove Cam’s the right man to take over the company. When a gorgeous caterer cooks up the perfect event and catches Cam’s eye, he proposes an innovative arrangement they’ll both benefit from. 

Lauren Brody knows Cam’s plan is crazy, but pretending to be his fiancée will allow her access to networking at events she’d never get into otherwise. It could be just the break she needs to get her catering business on the map and book the kind of clients she’s always dreamed of cooking for.

If she can convince Mr. Buttoned Up Tight to have some unscheduled fun along the way, theirs could be a perfect arrangement.

Cam is a man on the rise, and he doesn’t need any pressure from his boss or more importantly, from the wife of the boss, to settle down with his one and only.  Cam is perfectly content with life as it is now in the personal department, but that promotion is like glittering gold tinsel on the Christmas tree – something he wants badly and will do just about anything to get.  Including a bit of crazy maneuvering with one feisty woman of business.  After all, who would better understand a workaholic with no desire for a love life than another workaholic, right?

Lauren is proud of what she’s accomplished in her catering business.  She’s good and she knows it.  Yet, one can always get better, and move higher.  So when one attractive, sexy, a bit crazy client makes her an offer – it turns out to be one she cannot refuse.  And every good cook knows… you need to taste the dish to be certain that it’s done just right.  A pretend engagement would benefit Lauren and Cam professionally.  So why shouldn’t they enjoy the personal benefits as well?

The Billionaire’s Holiday Engagement was a fun read.  While the setting is more holiday than the story is, that background adds to their story.  I liked both Cameron and Lauren.  Both are workaholics, and at times their strong personalities clash often in who can out-stubborn the other.  But they worked, in spite of my occasional frustrations with them… they did work.  Here are two people who really needed to understand that yes, they could do it all on their own… but they were so much better and more successful together.  I had fun with t his couple, and that’s the whole point.

I’d recommend this story for any Romance reader who enjoys strong characters and a touch of Christmas.
